Texas Compact

on Immigration

As signers of the Texas Compact on Immigration, we are committed to promoting common-sense immigration reforms that strengthen our economy and attract talent and business to our state.


We recognize the critical role immigration plays in driving economic growth, and therefore support bipartisan immigration solutions that ensure our federal system meets the needs of our labor market; find a solution for undocumented Texans who make vital contributions to our state’s economy; secure the border; and enforce our nation’s laws. We also support statewide policies that recognize the myriad economic contributions immigrants make as workers, students, taxpayers, and consumers. Texas’ immigration policies must reaffirm our global reputation as a welcoming and business-friendly state.


We urge state leaders and our congressional delegation to adopt these three principles of the Texas Compact on Immigration to guide the immigration discussion in our state.   


  1. FEDERAL SOLUTIONS FOR OUR ECONOMY: To be truly competitive, Texas requires a federal immigration system that attracts global talent and investment and creates jobs in our state. We urge the Texas congressional delegation to support reforms to our legal immigration system that provide for enough legal workers across the skills spectrum to meet employer needs. Any such solution must protect our national borders, while also creating a pathway to legal status or citizenship for the roughly 1.8 million undocumented immigrants in the state who contribute $1 billion in state and local taxes, and, in particular, Texas Dreamers and TPS holders.

  2. IN-STATE TUITION: Texas has a long and proud tradition of embracing immigrants and leading the country in bipartisan, common-sense immigration policies. We urge state leaders to protect tuition equity and continue to offer in-state tuition to all Texas high school graduates who want to continue their education and contribute their talents to our vibrant Texas economy.

  3. COMPETITIVE COMMUNITIES: We understand the communities that grow and attract talent are the ones who are welcoming to all. We support local policies that ensure all residents have the tools and opportunities they need to succeed.
